It Ain't As Easy As It Looks: Ted Turner's Amazing Story
Turner's competitive instincts are always in play. He has set ocean racing records that will never be equaled, including an impressive America's Cup win in 1977. He bought the Atlanta Braves in 1976 and transformed them from a losing team into National League pennant winners. He has revolutionized the broadcast news industry, in the process rewriting the very definition of news from something that has happened to something that is happening. And he has become a one-man diplomatic corps with access, thanks to CNN's enormous influence, almost anywhere. Incredibly, no one has written the story of this amazing man. Until now. It Ain't as Easy as It Looks cuts through the gossip and folk tales to explore the real Ted Turner - the man who has overcome an abusive childhood and manic depression to accomplish more than even he had thought possible - with the depth, perception, and unflinching honesty that are embodied by the man himself.
